After a week of fermentation I'm realizing I missed my mark on color and flavor:
What I've got: A great brown porter
What I want: A more robust porter
I'm wondering if I steep some Midnight Wheat or Blackprinz (what I have on hand) and add it to the end of primary if it would get me closer to the results I'm looking for?
Details: 10 gal. split batch, WLP005 & WLP001 (64 deg. 2.5 days, 68 deg. 4 days)
(WLP005 @ 1.012)(WLP001 @ 1.020)...current(11/2/13)
16 lbs. pale 2 row
1 lbs. C 40L
1 lbs. C 80L
1 lbs. chocolate
.5 lbs. blackprinz
This is right in between a brown and a porter, leaning brown, and I want so bad for it to be a great robust porter! help!
